View Full Version : Game.dat error with Rise of the WItch King

02-04-07, 10:17 AM
I always get a 'game.dat error' after the splash screen of the Middle Earth 2 expansion pack.

I have an 8800 gtx, and have no idea why this is happening. Can anyone help?!

You got any antivirus program installed?

02-08-07, 07:10 AM
Yes, but I stop them running prior to playing, and I've tried running with them completely de-installed. No difference.

Have you ever used a NO-CD/NO-DVD crack?

02-08-07, 11:54 AM
No I haven't. Where would I get one from?

BFME used to have issues when you changed hardware as security protection. You may just need to reinstall the game.

try to loosen memory timings

I've re-installed several times. I';ve tried a no CD/DVD crack. It has now got my BFME 2 game working, but not one seems to work for the original or expansion!

What do you mean by loosening memory timings?

Can anyone help further? If not, do I have a right to demand money back from EA?

This helped for me on windows xp:

C:\Documents and Settings\"USERNAME"\Application Data\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II Files

Here you create an empty folder called "Maps". Without the " offcourse.

And a simple txt file you name "options.ini".

Inside the textfile the following should be present:

AllHealthBars = yes
AmbientVolume = 81.000000
AnimationLOD = UltraHigh
AudioLOD = Low
Brightness = 50
DecalLOD = High
EffectsLOD = UltraHigh
FlashTutorial = 0
GameSpyIPAddress =
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = Low
ModelLOD = UltraHigh
MovieVolume = 70.000000
MusicVolume = 78.000000
Resolution = 1024 768
SFXVolume = 80.000000
ScrollFactor = 64
SendDelay = no
ShaderLOD = UltraHigh
ShadowLOD = High
StaticGameLOD = Custom
TerrainLOD = High
TextureQualityLOD = High
TimesInGame = 66
UseEAX3 = no
VoiceVolume = 69.000000
WaterLOD = UltraHigh

You might have to do this in another place since your playing rise of the witchking and not vanilla bfme2. But this helped me with the same error.
